1.  Can either of these be used with an extension cord so I could use continuous drain feature?

Answer:

Here at Frigidaire, we strive for excellence and customer satisfaction and I am more than happy to assist you with your dehumidifier.

Regret to inform you that you are not able to use an extension cord with the dehumidifier. I apologize for any inconvenience this may pose for you. Using an extension cord increases your risk for electrical shock and fires.

I do hope that this information is helpful and thank you for allowing me the opportunity to assist you and thank you for being a part of the Frigidaire family.

 

2.  How do I get this to work in continuous drain mode?

I have attached the hose, but there is no documentation to tell me how to do it.

Answer:

To run the dehumidifier in continuous mode, please set the fan to the highest speed. Once the hose is connected, the dehumidifier will run in continuous drain mode.

 

3.  Why is there clay in the dehumidifier and should it be removed? And What are the warranty provisions for this model?

 Answer:

I am not familiar with clay being inside of the dehumidifier. You can view the warranty information on page 10. You may also click on the link below to download the guide for the dehumidifier.
